I've got an idea for a new thread, but most of it is borrowed from the newest Teen Challenge (which I'm asking Candra about). It's for practicing value and applying it to color, by first painting a still life in grayscale, then doing it again, but in color! I was also thinking about also adding in a value 'game', where you place dots of random grayscale values in a line, then try to guess the value by picking it manually and comparing how close you are to the original value (this was inspired by Sycra's value video).
Though, this might fit better as a weekly challenge later on. All these cool thread ideas you guys have been coming up with is getting me thinking, too, haha!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome Candra H! I really appreciate the help you're offering. I didn't want to bug Black Spot. She has been helping me so much. She's amazing. Everyone has been wonderful and this forum definitely wouldn't have happened without Indrik and Bitschi.
Bitschi - The collaboration banner. I'm putting you in charge since you had the idea. I like the idea of the collaboration, so go for it!
Bvperon - I made the thread. I called it the Beginner's lounge. Hope you like!
Indrik - Sorry it's taking me a while to comment on your thread. I just got home and I only had time to do quick gesture drawings, but it'll be the first thing I'll do tomorrow.
@ Nyghtrain - Don't worry about it! You've been doing a lot around here and the thread's not going anywhere!
@ Bitschi - I like your value game idea! I'd definitely be interested!
Indrik - Your thread is awesome! I can't wait to dip my toes into it.
Bitsci - I totally missed your post on the value challenge. I like it! I'm terrible at values, so I definitely need the practice.
Winter break just ended, haha, so I won't be able to be online all day anymore. Good thing I can use laptops at school!
ANYWAYS, @ nyghtrain - ASLDKJFGHAUREHFA WHHHHHHAAAAAA I GET TO BE IN CHARGE FOR THE BANNER AHHH WHAAT (direct translation: AHH THIS IS AN HONOUR THANK YOU)
Okay, I'm still at school, so I'll be posting up the banner thread and the value thread later. Maybe I'll go post in the beginner lounge. I'll post up my self portrait in the LVL UP thread when I get home, too.
Bitschi - You're welcome!I look forward to seeing both your threads go up. Wah! So much fun things happening. I've been waiting for someone to use the beginner's lounge, so I could go play in it.
So tomorrow I'm going to have free days on Thursday and Friday to open up the Pass the Story and Art RP. Is there anything I'm forgetting that we need for the beginner's forum, so I can make sure to add it to my schedule of things to do?
Hmm... not really. Any new threads for improving skills can always be put up and/or stickied, so I don't think there's any pressing issues to attend to.
Aghhh I'M SO EXCITED FOR PASS THE STORY AND THE ART RP.
Just a heads up, we have a limited amount of stickies, so I am unsticking characters and npc thread and just putting a link to them in the Travelers FAQ. Also due to the limited number of stickies, we will not be sticking anymore threads unless they are vital. Thanks!
I don't think it warrants it's own subforum at the moment. Maybe in the future if it got overwhelmingly popular then I would bring it up with Black spot to see. But for now, it doesn't even have character submissions yet. So we'll wait and see. But I'll keep it in mind definitely.
Nyghtrain, about how big do you think the banner should be? Also, on other activity forum's banners, they usually have something written, like rules, descriptions of what goes on, etc. I was thinking we can put on what a loose definition of beginner, and maybe a list of threads we have (though that will probably be a hassle updating, so I'm very iffy about that). Got any suggestions, anyone?
I like the idea of a loose definition of what beginner. I don't think we should add threads, because things change so quickly on a forum. AS to size, I think whatever would look the best without stretching the page or scrolling down too far.
I apologize for the delays. I'm very ill at the moment. I extended most events to give me time to recover. Sorry about that.
@nyghtrain throw me a pm if i can help with anything on the subforum :3
Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
What! Omg, I had no idea this was all here and started. I commented on nyghtrain's original thread that I would be down for this, then completely disappeared, lol. Sorry guys! This is so exciting, I already love this subforum. I'm gonna get started on some of these challenges.
Welcome! Sorry it's been sort of slow. The challenges I'm running are on a hiatus until May. I'm currently in the midst of taking care of some real life issues and that's the soonest I'll be able to be back to give the forum my full attention again. In the meantime there are other challenges going on here such as the Lvl up and the shading challenge. Hopefully you find something of interest.
